Former Chelsea defender Glen Johnson believes that the Blues should sell N’Golo Kante while they can. This comes amid speculations that the midfielder could leave for free next summer. Kante sees his current contract expire in 2023. While a new deal has been offered to the midfielder, both the parties have reached a stalling point surrounding the length of the contract. The west London club have offered the 31-year-old a two-year deal. However, the French international has turned it down as he wants a four-year contract.
And now, former Blues defender Johnson has suggested that the club should cash in on the World Cup winner while they can. Speaking to Boyle Sports (h/t Metro), the right-back gave his suggestion. He said Chelsea should possibly cash in on N’Golo Kante. He’s been linked with many clubs that might want him. They’re struggling to agree on a deal with him too. If Kante wants to stay and play then Chelsea will want him to. But there’s always a business decision when a player might want too much, or the club is giving them too little – then they should shake hands and part ways.
